The Armor stand with some red lines in the background

The armor stand is a helpful utility block added in the 1.6.4 version of the mod.

Usage & MechanicsEdit

when right-clicked one of two things will happen:

1. if you are holding an equipment item, it will appear on the armor stand 

2. if you are not holding an equipable item your current armor will be traded with the armor stand's current armor.

the armor stand can equip items from other mods, as long as they go in the helmet, chestplate, leggings, or boots, slots.
